About Hawthorn

Hawthorn, Victoria

 

 is a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) east of Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the City of Boroondara. At the 2011 Census, Hawthorn had a population of 21,177.

Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn, is designated one of 82 Major Activity centres in the Melbourne 2030 Metropolitan Strategy.

History

 

The area was first settled in the late 1830s. The Boroondara Roads Board, the first municipal authority, was set up in the 1850s and covered a remarkably similar area to the present City of Boroondara. Boroondara is an aboriginal word reputed to mean place of shade. However, the Hawthorn Roads Board and the Kew Roads Board split from the rest of Boroondara in 1860. The HRB evolved into the Town of Hawthorn and the City of Hawthorn. The state government amalgamated the Cities of Camberwell, Hawthorn and Kew in 1994 to form the City of Boroondara.

The name Hawthorn, gazetted in 1840 as "Hawthorne", is thought to have originated from a conversation involving Charles La Trobe, who commented that the native shrubs looked like flowering Hawthorn bushes. Alternatively the name may originate with the bluestone house, so named, and built by James Denham St Pinnock (see Australian DNB), which stands to this day.

 

 

 

Educational institutions

Hawthorn is the home of Swinburne University of Technology, which offers university and TAFE courses. The suburb is also the home of a number of private schools, such as Erasmus School of Primary Education, St. Josephs Primary School, Rossbourne School and Scotch College.

The area gives good geographical access to private schools in CamberwellMalvern and Hawthorn East, including Alia College and Bialik College, as well as those in Kew and Canterbury, such as Xavier CollegeCarey Baptist Grammar SchoolMethodist Ladies\' CollegeRuyton Girls SchoolGenazzano FCJ CollegeCamberwell Grammar SchoolCamberwell Girls Grammar School and Trinity Grammar School. Just west of Hawthorn (in Richmond) is the Melbourne Girls' College.

 

 

Economy

Glenferrie Road is a major shopping strip, with two supermarkets, all major banks and many chain and specialty stores. There are also shopping centres at the corner of Burwood Road and Power Street, in Church Street, in Auburn Road (the western side of which is within the Hawthorn postcode, while the eastern side is in Hawthorn East), the corner of Glenferrie Road and Riversdale Road and the corner of Auburn Road and Riversdale Road.

Hawthorn is particularly noted for the number, range and quality of its restaurants, many of which reflect the strong ethnic diversity of the region. There are also many nightclubs and hotels in the suburb. Although mainly noted as a residential region, there is some industry in the area, particularly in Burwood Road, between Power Street and Auburn Road.

 

 

Public facilities

The City of Boroondara retains offices in the former Hawthorn Town Hall in Burwood Road (near the corner of Glenferrie Road). This building is noted as a good example of late 19th Century public-building architecture. Boroondara City Council, Swinburne University and many other organisations maintain many important facilities within the City. These include sports grounds and other sporting facilities, public barbecues, infant welfare centres, youth clubs (including the Hawthorn Citizens' Youth Club, scouts and guides), churches of most denominations, etc. Hawthorn citizens also have access to nearby synagogues in Kew, East Kew and Doncaster and a mosque in Doncaster. The Bahá'í faith also has a presence in the suburb.

Swinburne University hosts a makeshift musalla for Muslims, which is used on Fridays for Juma prayers, for both students and common people.

 

 

Architecture

 

Hawthorn expanded rapidly during the 1880s land boom when grand Victorian houses built in subdivisions like the Grace Park Estate spoke of an upper class suburb. High rates of home ownership, a plethora of noteworthy independent schools (including, from 1916, Scotch College), grand churches, and prominent sporting clubs such as the Grace Park Tennis Club, consolidated Hawthorn's status as an affluent area. Yet the outstanding opulence of residences like John Beswicke's Rotha in Harcourt Street was still the preserve of a minority. By the 1880s working-class families lived in single-fronted, wood-blocked cottages on low-lying subdivisions like those forming Melville, Smart, Barton and Connell streets. Many worked in Hawthorn's clay brickworks found principally in Auburn, east of the village and around the lower parts of Gardiners Creek. Hawthorn bricks referred to as 'pinks', 'blacks' and 'browns' adorned the polychromatic façades of many local houses. During the depression, residential sections of Hawthorn were equally as run-down as those in determinedly working-class Richmond across the Yarra River.
